Video Interview – Cross Linking Method @ Metropolitan Hospital


A healthy cornea has crosslinks between its collagen fibers to keep it strong and able to retain its normal shape. In keratoconus, the cornea only maintains a few cross-links (or support beams) and its structure is therefore weakened. Through the cross-linking procedure, cross-links or “cross beams” are added to the cornea, making it more stable, holding its shape and focusing power better. The procedure aims to strengthen the cornea, which helps stop the thinning process and further loss of vision. Find out more on your options at Metropolitan Hospital by watching the video below
